NEW EDITION, REVISED AND UPDATED
Synchronicity is an inspirational guide to developing the most essential leadership capacity for our time: the ability to collectively shape our future. By telling the story of his remarkable journey toward an understanding of the deep issues of leadership, Joseph Jaworski explains the fundamental shifts of mind that will enable leaders to “listen” to realities that want to emerge in this world and acquire the courage to manifest them.

This long-awaited second edition includes two new chapters. The first features excerpts from the hundreds of letters Jaworski has received testifying to the profound impact of the book's message. The second describes the latest steps in Jaworski's journey, which led to his discovery of four principles that, when embraced, allow us to access the ultimate source of wisdom and creativity.
